Give a Gift to STORIES Students

Support the more than 70 students at Iowa State University in the STORIES program who have experienced foster care, homelessness, or similar situations with extraordinary challenges by providing a gift this holiday season!

The students in the program have put together an Amazon wish list. All gifts were picked out by the students and will directly support the students in the STORIES program. When gifts arrive, they’ll be anonymously given to the student who wished for the item.

Instructions for Using Amazon Winter Wish List

  • Instructions
  • Log into your Amazon account, if necessary.
  • Select a gift from the STORIES 2022 Winter Wish List.
  • Proceed to checkout.
  • Select “Laura Kilbride’s Gift Registry Address” so the gifts will be delivered to the STORIES office.

Order by Dec. 1: The preferred deadline to donate is Dec. 1. But, this will remain open through December. Gifts arriving later will be delivered to students after winter break.

Optional: click “Email the recipient a copy of their gift receipt after the gift is delivered” to give the option for the student to exchange the gift, for example, if the size is not quite right. Recipient’s email address is:

Or, if you would like to make a donation that is not from the Amazon Wish List, gift cards of any kind are always useful to our students.

Questions about STORIES, the wish list or gift-card donations can be directed to program coordinator Laura Kilbride, 515-294-8436,
